    Chicken thighs are used in this recipe, but skinless breasts could be used instead. Be careful not to overcook, as the result could be rather dry chicken. Serve with warm flour tortillas, spicy salsa and soured cream.

    A simple chilli con carne dish made with chicken! Chicken is pan-seared, then transferred to a slow cooker with tomatoes, beans and seasonings. It's the perfect dish to keep you warm throughout the winter. Serve with freshly cooked rice, jacket potatoes or corn bread.

    Although in northern Mexico ‘fajitas’ refers to a specific cut of beef, elsewhere in the world the term has come to describe a combination of sizzling pan-grilled chicken strips with peppers and onions, wrapped in a flour tortilla. The dish has very little fat, but lots and lots of fresh flavours.

    This Mexican-inspired dish is easy to make and a fab change of pace. Chicken is sauteed with vinegar, lime juice, spring onion, garlic and oregano for loads of flavour, then served in flour tortillas with tomato, lettuce, grated Cheddar and tomato salsa.

    A simple and hearty chicken chilli soup, which makes a lovely meal in itself. Chicken is simmered with peppers and cannellini beans in a spicy sauce. Serve on its own, or with rice, jacket potatoes or crusty bread. Use more or less chillies according to how spicy you like it.

    I took a look around the site for a recipe like this, and not having found one, I decided to have a go creating one. My family really enjoy it. You can adjust the heat to your own preference. You could also omit the chicken for a nutritious vegetarian option. I think it's pretty versatile. It would be delicious served with tortilla chips, guacamole and a fresh green salad. Hope you like it!
